Tis the season to be jolly, to eat too much, to shop more than usual, and to spread the love! One of our favorite ways to do this is by standing under the ol’ mistletoe. Since we know mistletoe can be hard to find, and honestly a little embarrassing to purchase (we don’t want to seem desperate here) we’ve come up with the ultimate craft that you can use year after year. This is the perfect craft to kick off your season of giving, and will be ready before you can say “Pucker up!” Grab the items below to make our felt kissing ball, and be prepared to be bombarded with smooches.
Here’s what you’ll need:
Your Hobby Holster (aka your BFF)
A glue gun
Christmas tree scented glue sticks (who knew they even made these?)
First you’ll want to completely color your styrofoam ball with the green marker.
Next load your glue gun with the wonderful aroma of a corner tree lot, and begin glueing the felt balls on in a random pattern (let’s not overthink this one…save the heavy decisions for what to get your uncle James.)
Once the felt balls are secured, insert the hook into the styrofoam and tie a length of string to it long enough to hang the kissing ball from your chosen spot (we like to pick high traffic areas, but that’s just us.)
Now that your kissing ball is on display you may want to stock up on spearmint gum and lip balm…just sayin’.
Enjoy our fun take on a holiday classic, but please remember that hanging it from your hat is just plain cheating!
